Boston Harbor Hotel – A Conversation with Catering Sales Manager, Ted Daniels

I have worked with Ted for many years and when he landed at the Boston Harbor Hotel, I knew it was the perfect fit for him! The Boston Harbor is a beautiful waterfront hotel with a gracious ballroom a little separate from the main hotel. Guests feel as if they are at a seaside resort as they explore the unique property. As for Ted, he is the ultimate hospitality professional. The word “no” in not his vocabulary; our clients are always well-cared for.             — Jodi

Tell us about the Boston Harbor Hotel.

With the Boston waterfront serving as a grand backdrop, the Boston Harbor Hotel is steeped in our signature “classically current” luxury and sophistication, ideal for weddings or any celebration.  The Boston Harbor Hotel is Boston’s only Forbes Five-Star and AAA Five-Diamond waterfront destination with hospitality and amenities that are truly beyond compare. The view, the décor, the service and the food – I know you simply can’t find better!

How did you get started in the industry?

I graduated from The Culinary Institute of America and I have taken my experience and knowledge from the back of the house to the front of the house, now for more than 34 years.

Each wedding is different as it reflects my couple’s style; be it, the time of year, set up and décor of a Ballroom, food and beverage selections, to how the day ends. Helping couples imagine their own unique wedding is what I love to do best; it is very creative and changes every day!  I cherish each and every one of my weddings as if it was my own!

Are there any weddings that stand out for you?

They are all special to me, but one experience does stand out. I created “a wedding to remember” on 11.11.11 for a chosen Military couple with an all-expense paid wedding and honeymoon covered by Boston Fox25. That was very meaningful to me.

What do you enjoy when you’re not working?

Outside of work, I’ve been married for 36 years and enjoy working in the yard, our two dachshunds Frank and Garrett, and traveling to sunny soaked beaches with tropical blue waters.
